Meet Lucy

I have worked with children from ages infants to eight years olds in a variety of child care settings for over 40 years. I have a masters’ degree in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College in Boston. I have taken early retirement from a local community college where I was a Professor of ECE for many years. I have a passion for young children and I am amazed and enlightened by their curiosity, creativity, and their constant energy. I love reading to children, process oriented art, singing and dancing and spending as much time outside as much as possible. I am dedicated to encouraging children to be children and I have an in-depth understanding of typical child development. I am so excited to spend time with young children once again as a part time, occasional Nanny/Sitter.
